Clement Asonzou Africa Editor

Islam Azmy Africa and Middle East Editor

Dear Reader, The aftermarket of imaging and printing supplies is growing globally as printing and copying is becoming more and more popular all over the world. The growth of this market is conditioned by high prices for original cartridges and parts to them practiced by OEM companies. As plenty of the companies offering alternative and cheaper solutions for printing and copying are small and medium-size businesses, they do need information about the market and its development. This information is priceless and extremely useful. It can be obtained from various sources: websites, forums, newspapers and, finally, magazines. But specialized editions are the most reliable source for it.

Editions

specialized in the aftermarket of imaging supplies have existed for 15 and more years already. These industry magazines usually focus on the regions they are from and can hardly cover the world-vast territory. Going global is not that easy as it needs a lot of efforts and a lot of…news from each single region to keep its readers interested.

Having

had a look at the geographic map of our planet, we could see a lot of “blank” spaces, which are not covered exclusively by industry editions to keep local remanufacturers and rechargers informed about the industry trends. What our team observed was that the “black” continent – Africa as well as the countries of Middle East do not have a reliable source of information about the state of the aftermarket there.

In

order to fill this gap, we, at R3 Solutions Group Ltd., the publisher of a number of industry magazines and events, launch a new industry magazine, RechargAfrica & M.E. Magazine, whose main focus will be on the aftermarket of imaging and printing supplies in Africa and countries of the Middle East. The magazine will be published on monthly basis. Its text will be in English and Arabic. In future, the magazine may be also published in French for the French-speaking countries on the African continent.

We

do hope this new enterprise will be a huge resource for local remanufacturers. The initiative will also comprise a number of educational seminars, whose aim is to initiate the local specialists to the breakthrough techniques practiced by specialists in other parts in the world.

With

all these we would like to present you the first issue of the magazine and wish you a nice read!

Remanufacturing the Xerox Phaser 5500 Toner and Drum Cartridges By Mike Josiah and the Technical Staff at Summit Technologies, a division of UniNet Imaging Inc.

Mike Josiah VP Technical Services Summit Technologies is a global distributor of toner, OPC drums, wiper blades, and other supplies for the cartridge remanufacturing industry. From 2007 Summit Technologies is a subdivision of Uninet Imaging. We have searched the world to find the finest in toner and components for the remanufacturing of laser cartridges. We have never committed ourselves to purchasing from any exclusive manufacturer, so that we can choose the best solutions for our customers. In some cases this has meant a higher cost, but we believe that quality is paramount in this industry. We test each system to ASTM standards and stand 100% behind the toners, components and systems we offer. Summit Technologies offers some of the most comprehensive technical support and complete product line in the industry.

irst released in November 2004, the Xerox Phaser 5500 is based on a 50ppm Xerox engine that runs at 1200 dpi. These machines have a monthly duty cycle of 150,000 pages and have a first page out in under 8 seconds. They are heavy duty network machines. I you have a customer with one most likely they will be using quite a few cartridges. These machines are a bit different from most these days in that they use a separate toner tank, and the drum unit also has developer in it. The toner cartridge, 113R00668 is rated for 30,000 pages, and the drum unit 113R00670 is rated for 60,000 pages. While that is the “rated” spec for the drum cartridge, in reality it is less. Rather than pages, the machine counts drum cycles. There is a max # of cycles set at 240,000. The 60,000 page life is based on an average job length of 6 single sided pages. The following is taken directly from the Xerox service manual: “As an example of how job length effects the drum cartridge life count, a continuous print job having a job length of 500 to 1000 pages results in a drum cycle count of 3.2 cycles per page. At 3.2 cycles per page, the drum cartridge life count increases to 75,000 prints. However, if the customer were to print mostly single page jobs, the drum cycle count increases to 7.8 drum cycles per page reducing the drum cartridge life count to 31,250 pages.”

specialist guide The reason for this is that there are start and stop cycles. So what this means is the bigger the print jobs, the longer the drum cartridge will last, the smaller the print jobs, the shorter it will last. Considering the above information, it’s highly doubtful anyone will get the stated 60,000 pages. The stated retail price (As of October 2007) for the toner cartridge is $154.00 and the drum unit is $374.00. So as you can see, there is plenty of room for a nice profit margin.

As this machine is a bit different from the norm in how it works (Toner and developer), we are covering the cartridge theory here as well.

The toner cartridge printing process is best explained as a series of steps or stages. (See Figure 1)

Machine and cartridge troubleshooting are covered at the end of this article. Cleaning Blade

Before we go into the actual cartridge theory, let’s go into what Developer is. Developer is actually made up of two components, metal filings (Carrier) and toner. When developer is manufactured, the correct toner is mixed with the carrier at a specific percentage. As long as everything is running correctly, developer never actually leaves the cartridge. It picks up the toner from the supply chamber, brings it out to be transferred to the drum, and returns to the developer section where it will pick up more toner and start over again. The mixture of the toner and developer is controlled by a sensor which is located in the toner/developer section of the cartridge. This sensor looks for a specific mixture. When it does not see the proper mix, it will cause the machine to cycle, and bring more toner into the developer section until it does. That is why when in two cartridge systems, a new toner cartridge is installed it will cycle for a while before it goes to ready. The best explanation I have ever heard on why developer must be replaced is this: Think of a single metal filing as having the shape of a 5 point star. (It doesn’t but it makes it easier to explain). When the developer is new, the points of the star are sharp, and there is a considerable amount of surface area between the points for the toner to sit. As copies are run, the friction of the toner, other carrier particles, and the magnetic roller will start to wear the points down. As the points get dull, the surface area for the toner to sit in is less. This will cause light prints and if let go long enough, the toner low sensor will never see the correct mixture and will not allow the machine to go to the ready state.

In the first stage, the Primary Charge roller (PCR) places a uniform negative DC Bias voltage on the OPC drum surface. The amount of the negative DC Bias placed on the drum is controlled by the printer’s intensity setting. This process is called conditioning. In the second stage, (also called the imaging section), the laser beam is fired onto a rotating mirror (called the scanner). This printer actually uses a dual laser beam unit which helps speed up the scanning process. As the mirror rotates, the beam reflects into a set of focusing lens. The beam then strikes the OPCs surface, leaving a latent electrostatic image on the drum. The third stage (developing stage) is where the toner image is developed on the drum by the developing section. This is where things change a bit for this system. As the magnetic roller in the drum cartridge turns, it picks up the developer which has a full load of toner on it. The toner is fed from the toner cartridge through an auger/port system. (See Figure 2) When the developer mixture sensor senses the proper mixture, it sends a signal to stop the agitator and the toner stops being fed into the drum unit.

upper and lower fuser rollers. The paper passes between a heated upper fusing roller and a soft lower rubber roller that presses the page up into the upper roller. The upper heated roller then melts the toner into the paper.

Toner Dispense Assembly

In the Seventh stage (Drum cleaning stage) the OPC drum is cleaned. On average, approximately 95% of the toner is transferred to the paper during the print cycle. As the drum rotates during printing, the remaining 5% of the toner that is on the OPC drum is cleaned off the drum by the wiper blade. It is then guided into the waste chamber by the recovery blade, and stored in the waste chamber.

2 The toner/developer is held to the magnetic roller sleeve by the stationary magnet inside the sleeve, and a negative DC bias voltage supplied by the high voltage power supply. This DC bias voltage is controlled by the printer’s intensity setting, and causes either more or less toner to be attracted to the drum. This in turn will either increase or decrease the print density. Both the Primary Charge roller and magnetic roller DC Bias voltages are controlled by the printer’s intensity setting. The amount of toner/developer on the magnetic roller sleeve is controlled by the Doctor blade, which uses pressure to keep the amount of toner on the magnetic roller sleeve constant. This blade also causes a static charge to build up on the toner/developer, which helps keep the coating of toner even, and allows easy transfer to the OPC drum. (Xerox calls the Doctor Blade a “Charging and Metering blade”). As the laser exposed areas of the OPC drum approach the magnetic roller, the toner particles are attracted to the drums surface due to the opposite voltage potentials of the toner, and laser exposed surface of the OPC drum. The charge differential is great enough to attract the toner to the drum, but not great enough to pull the developer. The developer stays on the magnetic roller and returns to the hopper for more toner. In the fourth stage (transfer stage) the toner image is then transferred to the paper as it passes below the drum by the transfer charge roller, which places a positive charge on the back of the paper. This positive charge causes the negatively charged toner on the drum’s surface to be attracted to the page. The small diameter of the drum, combined with the stiffness of the paper causes the paper to peel away from the drum. In the fifth stage (separation stage) the paper separates from the drum. The static charge eliminator weakens the attractive forces between the negatively charged drum surface, and the positively charged paper. This prevents toner dropouts onto the paper at low temperatures and humidity and also prevents paper from wrapping around the drum. . In the Sixth stage (fusing stage) the image is then fused on to the paper by the fuser assembly, which is comprised of the 8 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com

Once the print cycle has been completed, the Primary Charge Roller will then place an AC voltage across the drum surface that erases any residual charges left on the drum surface. The OPC drum is now ready to be conditioned by the Primary Charge Roller using the negative DC bias voltage, and start the print cycle again.

TOSHIBA the 60th SERIES ANALOG COPIERS – DETACHABLE OPTIONS for 1550 2060 3560 and 4560 MODELS OVERVIEW By Vladimir Kamenov

F

Eng. Vladimir Kamenov, PhD

ollowing the technical review of all analog copiers from Toshiba 60th series, comes the present article about the extensive list of detachable option modules. The available options are RADF – reversing automatic document feeder (ADF – automatic document feeder); LCF –large capacity feeder; Sorters with or without stapler; ADU – automatic duplexing unit and Pedestal. The copiers from the 60th series are quite capable of doing most of the daily copying needs of the users, but however nothing is perfect. So there comes the options list.

Vladimir Kamenov, PhD, is a specialist in maintenance of

various

models

of

Toshiba copiers. He holds a master’s degree in Precision Mechanics and a PhD degree in Applied Mechanics. His work

experience

includes

part-time and full-time jobs as

- The RADF module enables users to copy up to 50 originals at a time automatically both one and two sided. - The LCF is a useful option for users that demand a steady continuous supply of copy paper. The module has a capacity of 1500 sheets. - The sorter is a valuable option module for copy shops and busy offices, which operate with great number of multiple pages documents that need to be copied, sorted and stapled in up to 20 sets at a time. The sorters available are either of 10 or 20 bin types. The fist is a hanging type and the second is a stand-alone type. The stand alone type demands the original stand desk of the machine to be used or the optional pedestal module, for correct alignment of the sorter with the copier. - The ADU module is also 1 preferable for busy offices. RADF There is no need to explain the advantages of automatic double-sided copying. - The pedestal is yet another option for even greater volume of copy paper supply. It consists of either 3 of 2 auxiliary paper trays with variable paper 10 Bin Sorter formats. The places and external view of the described options are shown in Figure 1:

specialist guide PERIODICAL MAINTENANCE – USEFUL PRACTICES In general, the option modules are very reliable and rarely need special attention, apart from the regular maintenance and replacement of worn parts (mostly rubber parts). However, the goal of this article is, as usual, to give you guidelines for proper maintenance.

1. REVERSING AUTOMATIC DOCUMENT FEEDER (RADF) MR-3006/2008 The main difference between the two models is that the second can handle only one sided originals. This is preferred for machines that have no duplexing module for 2 sided copies.

SPECIFICATIONS OF THE MR-3006/2008 RADF MODULE:

Figure 2 – RADF maintenance cycle and parts In order to better troubleshoot and repair malfunctions in this unit, it is useful to understand how it works. The construction of the module is shown on figure 3:

RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com | 25


specialist guide 6. If you received a service call related with RADF/ADF original exit problems, you should remove the exit assembly. Follow the instructions in stage 5. If cleaning the exit rubber rollers doesn’t solve the problem, look at the spring clutches A. They are responsible for the transport of the original in the exit direction and in the reverse direction when making double-sided copies. Often after a significant number of originals fed through the module, these spring clutches break. See figure 8:

A 10. Remove the feed assembly. If you are not sure how to disassemble it, consult the service manual, because it has a rather complicated mechanics. See figure 11: 7. If your clients complain that the ADF module doesn’t stand in the open position and the copies are skewed and some times the originals even don’t exit, causing paper jams, you should look at the main hinge of the module. It is made of a spring and a shock absorber inside. If the module doesn’t stand open it indicates the absorber is worn. This causes the module not to close entirely on the original glass. The originals are not correctly transported onto the glass and thus the copy is skewed. The solution is to replace the entire hinge assembly. See figure 10. 8. If you want to replace the pick-up, feed of separation tires in the ADF module, you should remove the entire feed assembly; otherwise only clean the feed rubber parts with rubber cleaning fluid. To remove the feed assembly remove screws A and B. Unplug the connectors C from the main board. See figure 9:

ADJUSTMENTS: 1. Adjustment of skew (image inclination): (1) Please confirm the installation as shown (RIGHT HINGE). Note: Install the screw on the center of scale. (2) Place the test original face up in the tray, press PRINT to make a copy. Check that the copy isn’t skew. (3) If not, loosen the two screws on hinges and adjust the position of RIGHT HINGE. Repeat the procedure until the copy isn’t skew. Note: After the adjustment, tighten the two screws of LEFT and RIGHT HINGE without fail.

2. LARGE CAPACITY FEEDER (LCF) MP-1501 As far as my experience goes – this is a very reliable module. I’ve hardly ever made repairs on it, apart from the regular cleaning and repair of the pick up, feed and separation rollers. Periodical maintenance and replaceable parts:

FRONT AND REAR SECTION DIAGRAMS

DISASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENTS: If you plan only to perform a periodical maintenance of the module, you should open the LCF’s door while the tray is in the upper position and clean the bottom of the module with vacuum cleaner. Then close the door and press the tray-down button. When the tray is down open the front door and clean with rubber restoring fluid the pick-up, feed and separation rollers. Note: some times operators complain about frequent paper jams in the module, but the pick up and separation rollers are ok. You should look at the separation roller – often it wears unevenly. If the roller has a worn strip along its length, you should replace it. To replace the three feed rollers follow the instructions bellow. 1. Press the tray-down button. Wait until the tray is in the lowest position. Lift the handle A and open the LCF. Open the front door too. Loosen screws B. Remove screws C. Remove the upper cover. See figure 12:

4. To remove the pick up and feed tires, remove one screw A, a plastic clip B, the bronze bushing C and the support plate D. Remove the cylindrical weight E from the pick up roller and pop out the shaft from the white lever F. You should be able now to pull out the pick up roller. Remove the white lever from the feed roller shaft. Pull out the feed roller. Note: pay attention to the orientation of the rollers. They have built-in one-way clutches and, if you change their orientation during assembly, the feed mechanism won’t operate at all. See figure 15.

How ever there are some underwater stones with these modules. First of all sometimes operators open too rough the two metal sheet transport plates and bend them. As a result the gap between them becomes too narrow or even disappears, causing paper jams. The other effect if that the sheet would stop in the middle of its path to the stack tray at the bottom of the module. This is caused again by the bent plates. They have two paper actuated transport sensors, which position has become too high and they cannot contact with the receiving led parts. The solution to these problems is to gently bend the plates to their original position. Another problem is paper jams, when the sheets enter the ADU, but fail to be picked up for copying on their back side. This is caused by a failed spring clutch, located at the back of the module. See Disassembly chapter. Bellow is the periodical maintenance list: Periodical maintenance and replaceable parts

4. SORTER MG-1003 This is a 10 bin sorter without stapler, but it is also the most reliable one. Basically sorters don’t need so much technical attention, during exploitation. Their mechanical parts are made tough and hardly ever break if the module is used normally.

DISASSEMBLY AND ADJUSTMENTS: 1. Pull Out The ADU. Open the front cover of the copier and remove the two pins that hold it to the machine. Remove the cover. Remove screw A and the magnet plate with it. Lift the entire unit upwards and remove it from its rails in the copier (direction B). Place it on a work desk. See figure 16.

There are two defects that you may encounter servicing the sorter. In order to correctly understand their description and solution it is useful to know the construction of such unit.

BIN UP/DOWN MOVING MECHANISM:

A

B

30 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com

Since this sorter is of a bin moving type, a bin designated moves to the paper transport position and copy sheets exit into the designated bin. The drive force of the bin moving motor is transmitted through a timing belt and gears to the spiral cam 1. At the same time, it is also transmitted through a drive shaft to the spiral cam 2. The bins are moved up or down by changing the rotation direction of the motor. The bins are stopped at the preset position by one-rotation detection sensor tab attached to the spiral cam 2.


specialist guide 2. Figure 20 shows the construction of the sorter viewed from the front and the rear. Apply white grease to the cam-grooved drive shafts. This is important for their fail-free operation.

20

Figure 18 – Sorter construction Sometimes, operators push the sorter’s bins too hard. This leads to breaks in the guide rollers at the back of every bin, or in the sliders in front of each bin. The broken bin stands at an angle relative to the remaining horizontal bins. When the sorter attempts to lift the bin assembly the broken one creates tension and the drive mechanism slips. This, in turn, leads to misalignment in the drive shafts with cam grooves. The drive gears of the mechanism may break, or yet more bin rollers may break. This is the only serious trouble that sorters can experience. Advise the operators of sorters with angled bins not to use them until the misalignment is corrected. Generally the procedure is the same in every sorter model. It is described in the corresponding service manual, but the rule is: disengage the front from the rear drive cam-grooved shafts. Rotate them correspondingly so that the notch of each of them is in the right position. Maintaining this position engage the two shafts again. Make sure that all bins are horizontal and all bin guide rollers and sliders are correctly position one on top of the other. See figure 18. Another problem is that the sorter seems to think that it has paper in the bins and wants you to remove it, while there isn’t any paper at all. This is caused by contamination of the optical sensor for paper in the sorter. It consists of a LED on top of the sorter and a receiver on the bottom. Clean the receiver and the problem is solved.

DISASSEMBLY OF THE SORTER:

20

3. To get access to the delivery entrance rollers and the paper exit sensor, remove screw A and the cover underneath. Push the two clips B and pull out the cover C. You can clean the exit rollers with rubber cleaning fluid and inspects the exit sensor. See figure 21.

1. Detach the sorter from the copier. Place it on a desk. Remove screws A. Lift and then pry off the ends B of the side covers to remove them. After you have removed the side covers, push the tabs on each end of the top cover and remove it. Clean the optical sensor on the back of it. See figure 19.

specialist guide 5. THREE PAPER TRAY PEDESTAL KD-2009 The role of the pedestal is pretty obvious. The construction of the module is very simple. It consists of 2 (model KD-1003) or 3 paper feed mechanisms, that are the same in construction. What’s more – they are the same as the standard feed module, located in the copier.

The only maintenance needed for this module is to clean the feed rollers with rubber cleaning fluid and replace them when they are worn. The procedure for removing each module is the same as for the one inside the copier. It was reviewed in the previous article about Toshiba 2060/3560 and 4560 models. However it is useful to know the layout and construction of the pedestal. See figure 22:

The superior filling technique enables to fill the original ink volume for all cartridges. Moreover, the machine eliminates post refilling problems such as: - Ink dripping from the print head during the shelf life and transportation of the cartridge. - Ink drying at the edge of print head which blocks the ink channels and stop printing

Mr.Josef Mitosinka, president of EcoToner

Mr.Josef Mitosinka, president of EcoToner, visited Africa for several times. During one of his visits to Kenya, he meets a small local remanufacturing company. After a talk with the owner of the company, the president of EcoToner is sure the industry is perspective on this continent, too. Mr. Clement Azonsou During the 2005 INVEX expo he meets Mr. Clement, who is at a Prague university at that time. Together they two men decide to start a joint remanufacturing business in Benin, Africa. Thus, they lead a marketing survey in Benin in order to see whether EcoToner remanufactured cartridges can find their user in the African country. During the 2 years of trials and research the conclusion is that Benin companies are ready for this business. In November and December 2007 Clement was enrolled in an intensive cartridge remanufactured program at the Prague and Brno offices of EcoToner. The new African company will focus on printer sales as well as maintenance and remanufacturing services. Mr. Clement Azonsou can be contacted at: clemente@centrum.cz www.ecotoner.cz

Oliser - in the same time - is known for fast and reliable after-sale customer service.

and noticed that printers will become more popular and cheaper in the near future. Regarding this info he decided to join the cartridge refilling industry in 1997. Sooner in the following years, Oliser started to design and develop its own machines, equipment and supplies. Kiosks and refill shops are very popular in Turkey, the Middle East and Africa. 99% of Oliser’s market is based on the kiosks and shop concept. This concept was actually introduced by Oliser in Turkey. ”In a country where inkjet printers are present not only at home but also in many offices, this kind of business is very popular among consumers. There are not many big remanufacturers, but there are thousands of small businesses offering refilling services directly to the endusers”, said Mr. Burak Doken, Factory Manager in Oliser.

“We are very proud that a few companies are mimicking (copying) the Oliser machines. This clearly shows us that Oliser is a technology-based manufacturing company within the industry.” said Mr. Necip Ulku , the owner and CEO of Oliser.

Now, the company has been in experience for 15 years and is not a new player on the world scene. Strategically, with Turkish moderately low labor rates combined with first world technology, Oliser has the right ingredients in making it a formidable global player in the cartridge industry.

Necip Ulku was born in 1957 and graduated as an Electronic Engineer in 1981. He worked in Olivetti in Turkey as a service and factory manager. He contributed in the manufacturing of Olivetti electronic Typewriters in Turkey under license of Olivetti. In 1991 he established his own company Oliser as a dealer of Olivetti. He was very close to the office environment

RechargEast 2008 Expo is the Way to Successful Partnerships. Results

T

he curtain is down, the lights are off, the people went home – it is time to draw the results of the RechargEast 2008, which took place on May 21-23,

2008, in Moscow, Russia. Any exhibition is a serious enterprise, which represents a kind of a “blitzkrieg” – all responsibility is to be borne by the very days of the event, which are prepared for during one year. The results of the work done are seen only after the trade show has taken place. So, I suggest we go back to the trade show days and make a retrospective review of the most significant and interesting events. At the beginning of the last week, on May 20, passersby were surprised by the agitation at Pavilion 69 of the All-Russia Exhibition Center. That was the move-in day: the exhibitors were bringing in exhibits, decorations, samples and all other exhibition stuff. The partially solemn and partially nervous atmosphere preceding any event of this type set in. But, in spite of the preparation works, hurry and bustling, everything was in place by the evening. The only thing left was to have a good night’s sleep. On May 21 the trade show started. A long line of visitors formed rapidly in front of the registration, many of these holding preregistration tickets for free entry to the exhibition hall. Despite the fact that the registration of each visitor was done in no time, the line kept growing and it dispersed only in the afternoon. So, RechargEast 2008 began! RechargEast Trade Show 2008 took place in Moscow, Russia, for the 5th time in its history. RechargEast trade shows are the most significant event in the imaging supplies aftermarket in the Russian Federation and CIS countries. Reputed in such a manner, the trade show attracts a large number of foreign companies promoting their products at the international level. Covering one of the largest and most perspective markets in the 40 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com


events world (Russia and CIS) the trade show helps non-Russia companies find local parents and network actively, which is mandatory for successful business in the region. Therefore, RechargEast shows are so popular with Asian and Western European supplies and distributors of raw materials and parts for the printer cartridge remanufacturing and recharging process. For local remanufacturing companies RechargEast shows have become the traditional meeting place very important for finding serious suppliers, for learning about industry news and for acquiring new practical knowledge and skills. In 2008 RechargEast show had changed its usual format. The exhibition was divided into two areas: in one area local companies presented its products, in the other foreign companies demonstrated its achievements as well as discussed collaborative perspectives with the largest local companies. In other words, foreign companies had a great chance of communicating with the most interesting visitors to them: companies, which import products for selling in their own countries. Let’s get to figures. According to the data presented by the Russian company LINTEK, the registration-desk sponsor 2008, over 2500 visits were registered during the 3 exhibition days. That is, almost 1500 remanufacturing specialists, salesmen, decision makers from the industry from different companies visited the exhibition during the 3-day period. This year the exhibition hosted two educational centers: - Technical seminars and lectures were organized at the booth of UNINET Imaging: the lectured were presented by Mike Josiah, one of the most renowned technical specialists from North America, who is a permanent author of technical article in RechargEast Magazine and many other industry publications. Mike demonstrated how to remanufacture a number of newly appeared models of laser cartridges. - Technical seminars and hands-on lessons were also held in the RechargEast Education Center. These seminars were offered to the public by Alexey Voevodin, a young and ambitious specialist from the Kiev-based company AlekhanService. His hands-on lectures were very interactive as all attendees could take part in the discussions and offer other solutions to the discussed instructions for cartridge remanufacturing. The two educational centers were full of curious visitors, who could take an active part in everything happening. Sometimes, the discussions would turn in fierce arguments, RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com | 41


events but, to put it mildly, there were no victims. During the seminars the organizers of the expo got valuable feedback from the guests as to what other topics should be covered at the coming editions of RechargEast shows. The day of May 22 was the “rush” period of the exhibition. At 11.00 the VIP forum sponsored by the Russian company IRWIN was opened. The forum gathered over 60 owners and top managers from local and foreign companies. The attendees discussed most urgent topics for the local and global aftermarket of imaging supplies for over 2 hours. The topics included the following: • Structure of the Chinese/Asian aftermarket of imaging supplies (OPC drums, toner, inks, etc.); • Role of international distributors and new industry growth perspectives; • Trends in aftermarket growth in Russia and CIS; • Structure of distribution networks in Russia; • Importance of Russia’s regions and how to find a regional partner; • The most common mistakes foreign companies make while working in Russia; • The most common mistakes Russian companies make while working in China and Asia. At times the atmosphere in the hall would seem to be going beyond control, but all discussions and arguments were within the framework of propriety and mutual respect. Of all the topics discussed the seeming expansion of Chinese manufacturers to the north was the most detailed and interesting to the attendees. All were interested that once there were so many Chinese companies at this year’s show (over 30% of all the exhibitors were from China), do that mean Chinese companies are undertaking a Crusade to conquer the markets of their northern neighbor? The vice-president of the China IT association present at the show reassured all the guests that Chinese companies are only interested in finding local partners. At the same time she mentioned the association intended to register a company in Russia to make it easier for Chinese companies to start working in Russia and CIS. After such discussions and conversations the guests of the forum passed to a less stressful part of the event – the cocktail and business card exchange. On May 23 a commission made of local and foreign exhibitors announced the winners of “The Most Active Russian Exhibitor ”. The prize was awarded to two local companies ITCO Trading and GEST since the jury’s votes were split by half. At the end of the exhibition, on May 23, the Russian company IRWIN organized the traditional competition “The Fastest RechargEast”. This year the competition rules were made 42 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com


events more complex: besides being quick and skillful, the participants were to distinguish between 5 different OPC drums; each successful go would bring a point. The winner of the competition was the technician from the Ukrainian company World Wide Manufacturing. In order to draw the final line, it’s possible to say RechargEast 2008 was successful. It gave the exhibitors and visitors not only the possibility to communicate, but also a good chance of taking part in various educational and entertaining activities supposed for boosting their professional skills.

Toner for use in Konica Minolta Bizhub C350, C351, C450 One of the bizhub Konica Minolta Bizhub C350's differentiating features from many competing devices is its use of a tandem printing process versus a single central drum design. By using the tandem process, which uses four LED imaging units aligned in a row, and requires only a single pass of the document over the imaging units, the bizhub C350 does not suffer the up to 75 percent slowdown during color printing that plagues single central drum systems. In addition, since color documents only pass through the device once versus four times, imaging drum yields are not affected by the split between monochrome and color workloads. Atlantis’ cartridges contain 230 grams of toner and they are completely forward and reverse compatible with the OEM toners and guarantee consistently excellent image quality, increased profitability and lower cost per copy.

Our testing was conducted using a three page print job, which is a more severe test than most drums will encounter in the field. In this type of testing three pages are printed then the machine stops. This is continued until the cycle is completed. After each cartridge cycle the drum must be replenished using Static Control’s CTL Replenishment System™ and matched components. Static Control drums and their compatible engines qualified for this process include: HP 1012/1015, HP1018/1020/1022, HP1150, HP1200/1000/1220, HP1160/1320, HP1300, HP P2015/2014, HP M2727, HP1200, and also Canon® AX, and VX. After each cartridge cycle remanufacturers must conduct a visual inspection, as recommended with all drums to be CTL replenished, to ensure there are no dents, dings, scratches or severe striations.

Samsung launched the Smallest Printer and MFU At the end of April’08, Samsung informed about the smallest color laser printers the company has created until now. The CLP-315K model is a usual printer, but the CLX-3175FNK has scanning, copying and fax functions. Samsung CLP-315K is just 388(W) x 313(D) x 243(H) mm with the weight of 11 kg. If compared with previous models, the overall dimensions were diminished by 20%. Despite its small size the device can print in 2400 х 600 dpi and makes 4 ppm in color and 16 ppm in b/w printing. The printer is equipped with a 32 Mb memory. CLX-3175FNK stands out not only for its photo prints and printing ability from various storage supports, but also for the possibility to scan documents and transfer them directly to flash-cards.

After 16-24 hours on, the new paper will not have any traces of what had been printed and it can be reused. If you want to destroy a print instantly, the paper needs only to heat up to a certain temperature.

There is no information provided as to the release of the products on markets.

However, the paper can be used only in special printers that generate a light wave of a certain length to obtain print. At the moment the technology is at the research stage and its commercialization may be possible in nearest future. Source: www.ixbt.com

HOW MUCH SHOULD MY PRODUCT AND MY SERVICE COST? Part one: PRICE FORMATION Nikolai Yakimchuk

C

artridge remanufacturing and recharging have already become an attractive business. High prices for original imaging supplies make consumers look for a more accessible alternative. Once there is demand on the market, there will always be offer. In fact, such market conditions create an ideal situation, when the user has a choice to make: it can be an original, compatible, remanufactured or, at last, recharged cartridge. But technical skills of working with laser cartridges are just half the deal. It is also important to know how to offer and sell a product and service to the client. It’s often that startup businesses ask for how much to sell the cartridge or how much the remanufacturing or recharging service should cost. I think that any industry specialist would ask himself for many times how much his customer is to pay. After all, the goal of any company or any businessman is to create profit for himself so that to grow, expand or, sometimes, just survive on the market. From the beginning, I would like to say that the determination of the price of your product or service is not the easiest task. It’s absolutely simple to take a competitor’s price list and establish similar prices. It’s also possible to dump prices – to offer product at a lower prices than competition. But the two ways are destructive for the market. Why so? It’s more than simple: at an obviously low price for a similar product or service, sometimes businessmen are willing to increase the volume of sales by decreasing prices. Your competition may take up the challenge and diminish prices, too. You decrease price again, they do so, too. And the run-me game is on. Everything ends up by one party losing the game and getting out of the market as it is not profitable to sell this product. But the tragedy is that the winner stops the product line, too, as it’s not normal to sell beneath the cost of the product. That’s it! The market is dead. Once you are sure that the running game is not the most attractive enterprise, my suggestion is to pay attention to 54 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com

price formation and building discussed below. I hope these could help you build a certain price policy, which will depend not only on your competition’s behavior, but also on the state of the markets you work on. In order to determine the price of your product/service, do your best in fixing the retail price of the product at the most optimal level. If your price is too high, the sales volume may drop. If you lower the price, the sales volume may grow, but the total profit will fall. When building final prices for your product or service it’s important TO SEE YOUR COSTS . Yes, costs are the main attributes in the product price. All costs can be virtually divided into two big groups:

Fixed costs – these are the costs, which stay, more or less, constant throughout the production process, like the office rent, electricity, payroll, etc. Variable costs – these costs include, for example, raw material costs, that is, materials whose quantity is important to keep your business steadily working. It is logical that your product and service’s price should cover all the above costs and give a net profit for the business. Speaking the language of finances, the price of your product/ service should be higher than the prime cost of the very product (the prime cost represents all the costs of the production). Otherwise, the company will have trouble staying afloat. Why is it necessary to know about fixed and variable costs and also know how to distinguish between them? Everything boils down to the fact that variable costs can be controlled more easily: for instance, if your supplier increases exceedingly the price for, say, OPC drums you need for the

facts&opinions remanufacturing activity, you will certainly discuss the issue. If there is no way out, you will change your supplier. In case of fixed costs, the problem of cost growth is more difficult: if the pay for the staff is to be increased because of the inflation, you cannot stop this from happening as you are running the risk that the staff may simply leave the company. Fixed costs, however, are to be minimized as much as possible. If not, their growth can strongly affect the net profit of the company.

EXTRA CHARGE AND MARGIN Here I would introduce two more terms in the body of this article: they are extra-charge and margin. Sometimes, these terms are used as perfect synonyms, but they are not. Extracharge is the sum added to the cost of the product when the product is sold. Margin is the profit from sale of a product. These are calculated as follows: Extra-charge = (Retail Price – Prime Cost / Prime Cost)*100%. For example, the remanufacturing of a laser cartridge at the price of USD 30 with the costs (parts, toner, fixed costs) amounting to USD 15 shows that the extracharge is (30-15)/15*100% = 100%. Note that when the cost of the product is doubled, the extra-charge is 100%, and not 200%.

CASE: A company LaserCartridge could decrease its costs for spare parts through negotiation with the supplier. It allowed the company to lower the final price of the remanufactured cartridge (refilling + replacement of important parts in a cartridge) for HP1010 cartridges by 20% without any deterioration in quality. But, after having analyzed the prices of the competition and spoken with the biggest customers, the company did not decrease the price, leaving them on the same level as the competitors. This decision was conditioned by the reaction of the customers to low priced services: they thought low price is a sign of low quality. As a result, the diminishment of costs allowed increasing the net profit of the company.

Margin = (Retail Price – Prime Cost / Retail Price)*100%. If we continue with the above example, the margin (profit) brought from the remanufacturing of the cartridge at the price of USD 30 will be: (30-15)/30*100%= 50% Distribution and price Sometimes, the determination of the price is influenced by the distribution model in place. Companies, which are distributors, often prefer to sell their products through a number of sales agents or through, even, big commercial centers. If this is your case, then it’s time to think about the end user of your product. In other words, the product must be offered at a price accessible to the 56 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com

end user, who buys the product from the agent’s catalogue or at the mall. There are also companies that decide to open their own shops and sell products without any go-between. These companies suppose that their margin can be eaten up by intermediaries. It may be true, but it is also important to consider the placement and promotion costs as well as time necessary to advertise the product.

PRICE OF YOUR PRODUCT If your company manufactures ready offshelf remanufactured c a r t r idge s, t he determination of the price for the product could be built of a number of components: Retail price of product = cost of raw materials + labor cost + your margin/profit + VAT + fixed costs. Raw materials – it’s usually easy to determine the costs of all parts, including the empty, necessary for remanufacturing of a cartridge. But be aware of defected parts. Their cost should be also taken into account and added to the total of raw material costs.

What should the price of compatible laser cartridge of the X brand be in the electronics supermarkets A? If your company is an exclusive distributor of X-branded laser cartridges and you have an agreement with an electronics supermarket A, you want to know how much your cartridge will cost if bought in the supermarket. You would also know how much the end user will have to pay for and whether the price is ok. Suppose the compatible ready-for-sale cartridge is bought for USD 10/each from your supplier. Your extracharge is 85%, the VAT is 15%. So, you may sell your cartridge at the price of: Your product’s retail price = Cost + Extra-charge +VAT=10+8.5+2.77 = USD 21.77. The price may be rounded down to USD21.50 or up to USD21.99. Your price for the supermarket will be lower (say, there will be no or return of VAT + some discounts) and will be USD 18. Do not forget to compare your and your competitors’ prices. Then, find out about the extracharge of the supermarket and see whether the final retail price is ok to your customer. At the extra-charge of 50% of the supermarket plus the VAT, the final price of your cartridge would be USD 31.

Labor costs – these include the cost of the labor of your staff needed to produce a ready and functional cartridge as well as other taxes (social insurance, for instance, and pension fund – these may amount to extra +50% to the payroll).

facts&opinions Your margin – a margin is to be added up to the cost of the product. This is the actual profit for the company. Specialists in price formation advise the margin should be increased by additional 5-10% so as to create a special fund for future projects (purchase of a new line, expansion). VAT – the value-added tax is also a part of the retail price of the product. Fixed costs – the retail price of your product is to cover all your fixed costs. It is necessary to know to calculate the share of fixed costs for each unit by using this:

Jump start your company's growth in

Central and Eastern Europe September 25-26, 2008 Prague, Czech Republic

Fixed costs per unit = the total of fixed costs / Q-ty of products (for example, with fixed costs amounting to USD 1000 per month with the production volume of 500 cartridges monthly, the share of fixed costs for each cartridge will be equal to USD 2). It’s also worth noting that these calculations work only when all products are sold and not stocked.

PRICE OF YOUR SERVICE If it is rather easy to get precise figure when producing, digits come up not so smoothly while offering a service. For example, laser cartridge refilling is a service. The customer brings an empty cartridge and wants to have it full and workable. How much should this refilling service cost when the specialist uses his toner and time? Here, my tip is to determine the price according to the number of worked hours plus the cost of the raw (it’s toner in our case) plus the margin plus the VAT (worked hours + toner + margin + VAT). Disassembling a cartridge is not a problem. But any technical specialist knowing well his job will check all fragile parts, refill and, then, test the cartridge. This all takes time. Thus, with the price of a toner tube of USD 5 (let’s say we need the whole tube for the refilling process), the technician needed 30 min. Suppose the technician gets USD10 per hour, your margin is 50%, then we’ve got: Refilling = USD 5 + USD 5 + your margin (5+5)*50% + 15% VAT = USD 17.25.

www.ReEuropeExpo.com 58 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com

But there is a little “but” over here. The final price does not give any insight as to how much time and effort plus additional expenses were spent while negotiating with the toner supplier and shipping the toner to your company’s premises. You searched; called; negotiated…This is all time and money. Therefore, the possible price for this refilling might be around USD 19-20. RCA To be continued in the coming issue.

Country name: Arab Republic of Egypt Population: 75.5 million (UN, 2007) Capital: Cairo Area: 1 million sq km Major language: Arabic Major religions: Islam, Christianity

W

hile best known for its pyramids and ancient civilizations, Egypt is one of the most important countries in Africa and the Middle East. Egypt has a main political and economical role in most of the issues taking place in this part of the world. The regularity and richness of the annual Nile River flood, coupled with semi-isolation provided by deserts to the east and west, allowed for the development of one of the world's great civilizations. Pharaohs ruled in Egypt since 3200 B.C. till 341 B.C., leaving behind this world wide known heritage of civilization and monuments. 3 centuries B.C., Native rulers were replaced by the Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines. It was the Arabs who introduced Islam and the Arabic language in the 7th century and who ruled for the next 6 centuries. The Ottoman Empire ruled later. Following the completion of the Suez Canal in 1869, Egypt became an important world transportation hub. Ostensibly to protect its investments, Britain seized control of Egypt’s territory in 1882.Egypt has got independence later after an armed revolution in 1952. The completion of the Aswan High Dam in 1971 and the resultant Lake Nasser have altered the time-honored place of the Nile River in the agriculture and ecology of Egypt. Egypt’s population is 90% Sunni Muslims and about 10% Coptic Christians (Christian Egyptians). Whether Muslim or Copt, the Egyptians are moderately religious and religious principles are quite noticeable in their daily lives. Egypt is a country with an immense cultural mix. In every major city in Egypt you will find traditions that remain from the time 60 | RechargAfrica Magazine, July’08 | www.rechargeast.com

of the Pharaohs, and in other parts you will find pure tribal customs that were brought in by many invaders throughout the centuries. That contradiction and contrast between areas of Egypt, when you compare it with other Middle Eastern countries, is what makes Egypt seem advanced against some of the others. Yet here you will find that the customs and mentality tends to be full of warmth towards visitors and foreigners. This could be the secret why Egypt is considered the most attractive country in the region for travelers. Family ties are far stronger than in the west, and that is why you will find any major city in Egypt is a lot safer than any western metropolis. The modern economical situation of Egypt has witnessed a quite noticeable progress, as since the early 1990s the government has promoted privatization as a way to eventually increase industrial output. Industry accounted for 30% of GDP recently. Greater Cairo, Alexandria, and Helwan are Egypt's main industrial centers, producing textiles, electronics, iron and steel, refined petroleum products, plastics, building materials, electronics, paper, trucks and automobiles, and chemicals (including fertilizers, polymers, and petrochemicals). Egypt’s investments reforms went deep. Egypt cut the minimum capital required to start a business from EGP 50,000 ($9100) to


country profile EGP 1,000 ($180), and halved start-up time and cost. Egypt also reduced the cost of registering property from 3% of the property value to a low fixed fee. Egypt also reduced the cost of dealing with licenses. Egyptian bureaucracy has been slimmed to facilitate national activities and foreign investments, and more control measures were taken to reduce corruption in the governmental sectors. While exporters earlier had to deal with several state authorities, they now only need to face one. That is why in the past four years, direct foreign investment in Egypt skyrocketed from $2 billion to more than $11 billion, reaching over 5% of GDP for the first time ever. Significantly, most investments are in the non-petroleum sectors, reversing the previous norm. GDP growth has doubled, to around 7% per year. Upon the signing of one large-scale investment contract, Egypt’s minister of investment assured: “Once the government decided to push reforms across the board, a new mentality took hold that treated investors like clients who had to be served efficiently.” Ibrahim Saleh, a Kuwaiti investor who heads up several of the Kharafi Group’s manufacturing ventures in Egypt, including a $90 million smart card factory and a $140 million computer hardware manufacturing plant that started operation earlier this month, said: “ Egypt is one of the most suitable bases for technologically advanced production in the region because of its location, its population and the availability of a skilled domestic workforce”, emphasizing that Egypt’s proximity to European markets makes it a better candidate for multinational production and export to Europe. Business people in Egypt are generally friendly. Open and personal relationships are an important factor in business

success. It is worth noting that the written contract (on the private scale) is not generally considered in Egypt to be the end of the deal. Egyptians will often want to continue to negotiate better terms throughout the business relationship. Provided you are comfortable with bartering, and allow for this in the original deal, this process can significantly enhance your chances of an ongoing business. Concerning business potential work force, almost six out of every ten Egyptians are under 25. They are enthusiastic, educated, forward looking and open to new opportunities. They receive a well-rounded education and increasing numbers are acquiring degrees and specialized skills and training to take advantage of the new careers that are opening up.
